UPDATE;  Surprise!  After we rescued Cookie, we discovered she was pregnant.  She has just delivered her puppies – ELEVEN of them!  Funds are needed for this little family as all the puppies will need vaccinations, vet exams, spay/neuter surgery, etc.   Can Cookie count on you?
Cookie lived in SkidRow roaming the area for food, but always returned to be next to the humans treating her kindly – despite her owner disappearing for days at a time.  Her owner is deceased and GSROC stepped in to offer her a better life.
Cookie, now 2 years old, is super smart, and very friendly.  She has always been next to people, and will do best in a home with someone who is around most of the time.  Another dog in the home would help increase her sense of security.
She is a young girl, energetic and smart.  A yard with a high fence will be best for Cookie. . She loves playing tug-of-war and going for long walks/hikes.

If you would like to meet Cookie, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

Adoption Application If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you may submit an application online or via fax. If you choose to send a fax, please download the Adoption Application here in PDF format; fill it out and sign it. You can fax it to us at 714-773-9430.

Home Visit Prior to any dog going home, we do require a home visit to ensure that your environment is safe and secure. Once your home has been approved, the adoption can move forward.

Adoption Donation In light of the rising vet care costs associated with Giardia tests and boarding at vets, we are raising our adoption donation for adult GSDs to $395.00 starting on July 1, 2021

The adoption donations for other dogs will remain the same — $475.00 for purebred puppies, $375 for mixed puppies. (On a case by case basis, e.g. senior for senior, we will place a senior for $275.00 with a senior.)

This donation is tax-deductible as allowed by law and helps to offset the costs that we have incurred for the dog’s care and housing during his or her stay with our group. The minimum adoption donation does not entirely cover the investments that we have made in the dogs, so if you are in a position to give more, we would be honored to receive your additional donation. All adoption donations go directly toward the needs of our dogs.

All dogs adopted through GSROC are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccines and de-wormed. Because the minimum Adoption Donation rarely covers the costs associated with each dog, we ask that adopters who are in a position to give additional funds do so at their discretion.
